My partner in crime, Andrea Kihlstedt, and I have created the Capital Campaign Toolkit to put you in the driver’s seat for your capital campaign.
Until now, organizations have relied entirely on capital campaign consultants when it came to capital campaigns.
The OLD Way of Doing Capital Campaigns…
Because organizations conduct campaigns only every ten or twenty years, very few people have the depth of expertise that makes them confident in their ability to lead a campaign. As a result, capital campaign consultants have a corner on the market.
And if you’re like many organizations, when your board decides it’s time for a capital campaign, the first thing you do is call a campaign consultant and ask for a proposal.
But now, as with many of the professions (legal, medical, accounting, etc.), the ways you can access expert information and best practices are changing.
A NEW Approach to Capital Campaigns…
No longer do you have to be entirely dependent on experts. You can access the best practices for conducting a capital campaign yourself. And then, you can combine that information with targeted assistance from the experts as you need it.
The Capital Campaign Toolkit: A Roadmap for You
The Capital Campaign Toolkit provides step-by-step guidance for your capital campaign. It organizes the campaign into seven phases and provides steps for each phase.
Included with each step are the specific documents and spreadsheets you can use for your campaign.
You’ll also find a listing of campaign consultants who are familiar with the Toolkit material and who can help guide you as you apply it to your campaign.
The Campaign Toolkit Blog
Andrea and I will post on this blog regularly. In some posts, we’ll tell the stories of organizations and consultants who use the Toolkit to great effect. In other posts, we’ll discuss specific tools and explain how you can get the most out of them.
